family about $2,000. 22 days 'til we hit the fiscal cliff and some promising news, i think, is when we found out the speaker and president actually met yesterday to talk to each other and we don't know really what happened. we do know if you point to senator corker and coburn and now congressman cole, there seems to be a movement on the republican side. like it or not, to move up the rates on higher brackets from 35 to 39. >> gretchen: only if we get something in return. the way i'm reading this, some are saying maybe it is time for us, we don't like it, but good faith effort, we will agree to raise taxes, but only if the president and his team then agrees to cut back on entitlement spending specifically. >> steve: and while neither side yesterday released any details of what the speaker and the president did talk about yesterday, perhaps when the president goes to michigan later today and does have a chat in front of cameras about the fiscal cliff, perhaps he will reveal some details to figure out where things are going, or at least the basic contours of it. it was very clear yesterda

the country falling off the fiscal cliff. >> let's allow higher rates to go up for the top 2%. by doing that alone we raise almost trz z $2 trillion. >> increasing rates will hit small businesses that produce 60 to 70% of the new jobs in our country. >> most americans agree with the president. a majority say they are okay with raising taxes on people with incomes over a quarter million a year. this poll is one of three surveys out over the past week and a half to indicate the public gives a thumbs-up to raising taxes on high earners. the polls indicate a big partisan divide with democrats and independents supporting such a move and a majority of republicans opposed. the polls also suggest that most people want cuts in government spending as part of a deal to avert the fiscal cliff. not when it comes to entitlements. according to three new surveys a majority say no to raising the eligibility age for medicare. does the public think politicians in washington will hammer out a deal before the end of the year deadline? americans appear divided. a plurality in one poll say yes. a plurality in
a new proposal over to the white house to avoid the fiscal cliff. the house speaker. let's listen. >> i feel fine, i just sound a little foggy, that's all. as of today, the president's plan to avert the fiscal cliff still does not meet the two standards that i laid out the day after the election. his plan does not fulfill his promise to bring a balanced approach to solving this problem. it's mainly tax hikes. and his plan does not begin to solve our debt crisis. it actually increases spending. our plan meets the standards, it cuts spending and paves the way for real job growth in our country. in the five weeks since we signalled our willingness to forge an agreement with the president, he's never put forth a plan that meets these standards. and, frankly, that's why we don't have an agreement today. the longer the white house slow walks this discussion, the closer our economy gets to the fiscal cliff and the more american jobs are placed in jeopardy. >> good morning. the president has said on a daily basis that we should be passing a balanced plan. but what we hear from the president is
. >> thank you, shannon. >> still to come on america's news headquarters, fiscal cliff fiasco. enough about tax rates going up, the outrageous thing virtually no one's talking about is our spending problem. america is $16 trillion in debt and counting. how much does each american -- you! owe? we'll break it dowfnlt regulation nation. the federal government wants to take away people's homes, tear them down and plant grass, all in the name of environmental cleanup. democrats and robberies robberie joined forces to fight back. >> isn't there anyone who know what is christmas is all about? >> everyone loves charlie brown, right? not so fast. the beloved cartoon character is caught up in a war on christmas. i gave birth to my daughter on may 18th, five days later, i had a massive heart attack. bayer aspirin was the first thing the emts gave me. now, i'm on a bayer aspirin regimen.

. thank you? >> reporter: thank you. jenna: a new information on the fiscal cliff crisis. easy enough for me to say. the fiscal cliff crisis and what going off it could actually mean for us. there seems to be little disagreement what this is all about. take a listen. >> when you're addicted to debt, 16 trillion bucks and you're in the hole, one trillion, and the markets will jump in and nobody will know when that is. the tippingpoint was always described by dick durbin, when will it happen? when it happens interest rates will go up, inflation will go up and guy that gets hurt the worst is the little guy. >> i think the overhyping of deficit, the deficit mania that is seized this town is kind of crazy. i mean i love alan simpson and erskine bowles, they're talking about inflation at a moment when people are paying us money to invest in our treasury bonds? jenna: charles payne, fox business network. he has his own list what we should worry about, charles, who is right here? >> reporter: i got to tell you the idea people are giving us money, america to our treasury bonds doesn't necessar
be directed to new spending instead of deficit reduction. the fiscal cliff must be averted to protect our economy for future generations. yesterday, house speaker john boehner asked the president to identify specific cuts he's willing to make for a balanced approach. i hope the president will take immediate action so progress can be made for a bipartisan solution. in conclusion, god bless our troops and we will never forget september 11 and the global war on terrorism. the speaker pro tempore: the time of the gentleman has expired. the chair recognizes the gentleman from new york. >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. mig-ins: mr. speaker, there are many lessons to be learned in the wake of the hurricane that devastated parts of new york and new jersey. one of which is the importance of electronic medical records and health information technology. while many hospitals and medical centers were damaged by the storm, hospitals that employed electronic medical records were able to ensure that vital health info
